Castro Station was a Caltrain station located in Mountain View, California, just south of the railroad crossing at Rengstorff Avenue. It was replaced by the newer San Antonio station, which opened 0.8 miles (1.3 km) to the north in April 1999.[3]

After boardings at Castro were cut in half by the newer station opening, Castro was closed on February 6, 2000.[4]
